Att lämna Tellus


Artist: 55 Cancri é
Label: Music For Dreams
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 09 December 2016

Att lämna Tellus (in English: To leave Tellus) is a journey between the planets Tellus (Earth) and 55 Cancri e. It starts on Tellus with a feeling that you might not be where you are supposed to be. It follows a search for a peace of mind and a place in the universe where you belong...

55 Cancri é's new album Att lämna Tellus is one that you'll either love or hate - there seems to be no middle ground here. This is not an album I would chose to listen to for pleasure, but I understand why many will fall in love with it.

It's the brainchild of Swedish artist Sara Hausenkamp, and while it's supposed to represent her dreams of space travel made flesh, I didn't really feel it. Yes, it's trippy and a little out of body, but it didn't really bring to mind a journey through space - not even remotely.

The LP contains 10 songs (42 min, 42 sec). While I wasn't a fan, it certainly represents something a little different.
